Bluegrass band Greensky Bluegrass will perform Friday, May 6, at 5 p.m. on the University of Wyoming Prexy’s Pasture. The concert is sponsored by 7220 Entertainment and is free and open to the public.

Greensky Bluegrass uses acoustic instruments, including the dobro, banjo, guitar, upright bass and mandolin.

The band’s five members strive to create a powerful sound incorporating the Americana genre with their own unique additions.

“The tension and release between these components -- tradition and innovation, prearranged songs and improvisation, acoustic tones and electric volume -- is what makes them so thrillingly dynamic, in concert and on record,” according to the band’s website.

Greensky Bluegrass plays up to 175 shows each year, mostly including festivals such as “Bonnaroo,” the New Orleans Jazz Festival and the Heritage Festival. Greensky Bluegrass specializes in improvisational techniques and songwriting.
